    It might be true that there was a guitar like this in NY.....but really.....

    "Custom Shop reissue of famous heavily modified Strat that hung in the window of We Buy Guitars on 48th St., NYC in the 1970s. The original was one of a kind and so is this. Hand-crafted by Bobomagus O'Leary of FCS/Special projects at a remote location near Jacumba. All paperwork, COA, case, tags. Never played, never gigged, never left my temp-controlled cigar room. Formerly celebrity-owned. 7500 firm or trade for equal value in land, 4wd vehicles, survivalist gear."

    Well, that's one way to make sure you have enough room for the block when you want to do a dive bomb.:whistling:

    I LOVE that string setup. You could configure it with a double triangle or an "X" config for a little more tension.:eek:

    It's either a total gag or someone is casting a line into the gene pool just to see if some total moron might bite. You'd have to have a hole in your head as big as the one in the guitar to believe any of that crap.

    edit- ok, just re-read the description, someone thinks they're a real comedian.:rolleyes:

    I don't want to burst his balloon, but I think $75.00 is asking too much.

    I worked around the corner from "We Buy Guitars" in the Magno Sound and Video building

    They had more Les Pauls than I've ever seen in one place
